AQHA Promotes Member Input for Rule Change Proposals

Tags: technology
DATE POSTED:July 3, 2024

Each spring, the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) holds a convention to review rules and policies. During the convention, member-submitted rule change proposals and suggestions are also reviewed.

The final standing committee reports from the 2024 AQHA Convention are online, and it is time to think ahead for 2025. The AQHA wants to hear any suggestions members have to make AQHA membership, programs and services reach their fullest potential.

AQHA members are vital to the Association and have been influential in shaping the organization since its founding in 1940. The opportunity to propose new rules or changes allows members to voice their ideas and help continue to improve AQHA for future generations.

If you are an AQHA member, you can submit a suggestion for a rule change for the AQHA Official Handbook. All proposals are due by December 31 of each year.

To submit a rule-change proposal:

  • Complete a rule-change proposal form.
  • Define the problem and develop as many possible solutions as you can by asking others for input.
  • Choose one possible solution that appears to be the most appropriate and that fits the mission and goals of AQHA.
  • Determine if any other rules would be affected if your proposal is adopted and specify the rule numbers.
  • Submit proper wording for a proposed rule change by typing or neatly printing the exact wording being proposed. If you propose changes to existing language, strike through the words you propose to delete. Type in bold and italics the words you propose to add.

All proposals must be received by December 31, 2024, for consideration at the 2025 AQHA Convention, slated for March 28-31 at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

If you complete the PDF form, please return it via email to [email protected]. If you prefer, items can also be submitted by mail at:

AQHA

Amarillo, TX 79168

Guidelines for writing proposed rule changes can be found in the AQHA handbook, and a full list of committees can be found on the AQHA website.
